All you really need to do is get your hands on some recording software, such as Adobe Audition, which used to be Cool Edit Pro, and run the tape deck line outputs into your soundcard line inputs. You can set Adobe to record at almost any quality setting you choose,(if your soundcard allows it) ie, 44100 khz, 16 bit stereo, 32 bit at 96,000 khz, or a host of other settings above or below those two. Just remember, CD's are burnt at 44,100 khz, 16 bit, stereo, so if you use a higher setting, you must convert before burning. Adobe will also allow you to clean up hiss, crackle and pops, and other artifacts before you burn. I've used this small set up to convert many cassettes, and old LP's to CD with good success. You can also "strech" or "shorten" the wav file to compensate for "pitch" if need be. Adobe will also convert wav files to MP3 files if you so desire.
